What to Look for in a Gift for a 7-Year-Old

Imagination

While 7-year-old girls may know the difference between make-believe and reality, they still have plenty of imagination to entertain themselves and amuse others. Whether it’s a hands-on activity or a creative outlet to bring her dreams to life, you can't go wrong with a gift that helps her explore her own imagination.

Interaction

Help your 7-year-old acclimate to the world around her with gifts and activities that strengthen her ability to communicate with others. Make the most of her silly sense of humor, and help her develop social confidence. Games, karaoke, and other gifts that help her build confidence are great for her social development.

Creativity

Most 7-year-olds are full of ideas and energy. Plus, they're refining their fine motor skills. Give her a fun, engaging way to explore her budding creativity, and you’ll be delighted to see the fun and interesting things she comes up with. Choose from options like needlepoint, connector construction kits, and more.

FAQ
  • What do 7-year-olds like to play?

    Every 7-year-old is different, so it's important to take their interests into account when shopping for a gift. Some popular genres of toys fitting for 7-year-olds include crafts, sports, cars, STEM, beauty, and more. It also helps to determine what shows or movies they enjoy. Oftentimes, popular franchises, like Harry Potter, Star Wars, Marvel, and more have toys based on pop culture suitable for all ages.

  • Why is a 7th birthday special?

    Turning 7-year-old often means a child taking a bit more responsibility and independence. This is a great age to give a gift that promotes this new maturity and independence, such as something based on learning a new skill, developing a new hobby, or crafting something they can use. Of course, every birthday is special and deserves to be celebrated, especially for young children. It's important to honor every age as an achievement, look back on the lessons of the last year, and ahead to the new year ahead.

  • What do you write in a 7th birthday card?

    Writing a card is a personal, sentimental way to show someone you care and are thinking of them. What you write in the card will determine on your relationship to the birthday girl. You can share an expression of love, telling them how proud you are, share a wish for their special day, or a funny saying about turning 7. There's no strict rules when it comes to writing birthday cards. Simply write from the heart; any handwritten card is a welcome gift.
